I am a Surface pattern Designer and Illustrator based in Auckland, New Zealand. I always love drawing and painting. I was a town planner before I quit my job and created my own business selling artwork. It was not until 2015 I focused on surface and pattern design. My patterns are native inspired although I am inspired by the things I see around me everyday. I design my patterns with my customers in mind and they are the people who appreciate art and craft, adore lush and painterly prints and have a classic elegant style.
